  • 3.0 June 17th. Or Today.


    3.0 chatter has been going on a while now (and is already jailbroken and officially has Cydia ready and released for it, you faithful hackery types), and WWDC marked the official date announcement - June 17th (pf.edit, thanks guys - not the 19th). Developers were given out the gold master today - bye bye betas.

    We've already been over most of the 3.0 improvements, and Apple tossed us a couple bones as well:
    • MMS supported from 29 carriers as of game day, although AT&T will get that to us "later this summer". Thanks, AT&T.
    • Safari has got some solid speed increases - JavaScript 3x faster, HTML 5 support, HTTP streaming a/v, and auto-fill (nice).
    • Tethering supported from 22 carriers. Of course AT&T won't be on that list, but are sure they'll get to it soon.
    • You can now RENT and PURCHASE movies from the iPhone through iTunes, including audiobooks.

    iPod Touch users save your pennies - the upgrade will be free for iPhone users, but $9.95 for iPod Touch folks, same as 2.0 was.

      If we get our hands on an AT&T sim just long enough to activate it, can we stick the T-Mobile sim back in and be fully working?

      Until you try and synch with iTunes and get the 'unsupported SIM' message...

      Someone jump in and help me out here...

      1. MMS shipped out with the 3.0 GM but AT&T users can't even access it in the options menu anymore? OS users can?...

      2. For the best effect a fresh install is needed? (Don't us previous settings or anything?

      3. Has anyone on anyone found anything that wasn't in Beta5?

      if we synced it with the AT+T sim in.... then took it out for the T-Mobile??
      would it be fine?

      So long as you put the AT&T SIM in every time you want to synch I don't see why not.

      It's a lot easier to just wait for the official jailbreak though...

      no there is a baseband update unlock will not work and there probably wont be an unlock for the next 4-6 months or so, its a painstaking process im sure.

      as for unsupported sim message to bypass this if u want to have 3.0 on ur phone anyway like me and wait for turbosim unlock, get an att sim to activate then whenever u want to sync turn airplane mode on then plug it in, it will sync

      Ive got a 2G, so I should remain unlocked. I dont think there is a baseband update for it.

      BUT

      The airplane mode sounds like a good idea.

      How safe is it to install this? I'm with o2 so don't need to unlock or anything.

      Is it going to stop me from downloading the 3.0 that's released next week (if it's different)

      It is OK to download with Safari. The file you are downloading is .ipsw.zip and by default safari decompresses zip files and moves them to the trash. Quick tutorial;
      1. Open your trash
      2.Arrange by date created
      3.Top one should be the .ipsw.zip (provided you just downloaded it)
      4.Move it to the desktop (or anywhere)
      5.Go to the 'get-info' area (right click) and then delete the .zip so that it is just .ipsw
      6.It may ask you to confirm the filename switch, click yes
      7.Option restore in iTunes and navigate to that file.

      Hope it helps!

      So I have a 3G iPhone and I updated to 3.0 last night. I am on AT&T and everything seems to works just fine except I see nothing on MMS on my phone. Are others having this problem and is there a fix?

      Well I knew that. I watched the WWDC yesterday. I just figured with the update it would at least still have the settings and buttons in the phone.

      Looks like it is time to drop my 8gb and 16gb onto eBay so I can buy 2 32gig phones. I am glad I kept the phones unlocked. I had a feeling I would have to pay out the butt for the new ones.

      you know... it's kinda funny.

      The day I got my iPhone about a year ago, I went to the AT&T Store, signed up, got my phone, had about 2 minutes of charge, called my wife while she was at work, said I got my iPhone and I wont be available for a while because I am going to be sitting in front of my computer modding it...

      I made a 2 minute phone call, and then spent the next 4 hours tweaking.

      SO.

      For no other reason then "Because", I am upgrading everything just to play with a completely unmodded iPhone. I figure, 3.0... Why Not? Sure I will lose my theme, and some of my custom sounds. But I want to see how the other side lives if only for a little bit.

      Like going on vacation for a week :-)

      ...

      ...

      ...

      oh god... it just finished as I was typing this...



      Thank You SB for putting this up!

      But I already have unlimited data and access to the hot spots !!

      All I want to do is check email and browse the web on the bigger screen of my laptop, I'm not paying again! for the same acces I have already, albeit on a small iphone screen.

      Does anyone know if PDAnet is OK with 3.0?

      Does the new Voice Control only work on the new Hardware? (i.e. 3GS?)
